Fabric pumpkin garland for Thanksgiving


This fabric garland is made with coordinating fabrics and cotton quilt batting. I did a running stitch by hand around each pumpkin and then tied them together with embroidery thread.  This is a really easy project even if you don’t know how to sew and will last for many years.


  • small pieces of coordinating fabrics
  • cotton quilt batting
  • embroidery thread

Step 1.

Cut out pumpkin shapes from each of the fabrics you have chosen.


Step 2.

Cut out pumpkins from the cotton batting that are slightly larger than the fabric pumpkins as shown.


Step 3.

Take two strands of embroidery floss and sew around the edges of the pumpkins using a running stitch as shown.

Step 4.

Lay out the pumpkins in the order you want them.


Step 5.

Run the needle through the edges of pumpkins as shown and then tie bows to hold them together.



About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
